According to Jezebel’s “People Who Love Halloween are the Best Kind of People” I, and those like-minded others are truly fantastic! So, rejoice! Not only do we get one more day of non-Christmas, but we are also all officially amazing!

If I were a celebrity, or just a person of means, I would spend SO MUCH MONEY on Halloween decor and costumes. (It would be inappropriate amounts.) Even though they aren’t going as mad crazy as I would, here are some celebs who are totally bringing it this year:

So, if you’re going to a Halloween party tonight, take tons of pictures and have a wonderful time relishing the madness! If you, like me, are playing it low-key on this mid-week Hallow’s Eve, here are some movie options. I will likely be watching several, but Hocus Pocus is a definite. (The Divine Miss M loves it, too!) Poltergeist is another I haven’t gotten around to watching this season, and since my Dad and I enjoy doing our own MST3000 commentaries, I know there will be some silly cult horror, too.

We watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show the other day! If you haven't, DO IT!

As a background to this marathon, will (hopefully) be one of my favorite Halloween activities, now that I’m an adult. I get a particular thrill out of listening and/or watching my Mother scare the little kids who come Trick-or-Treating. Since children are scared of pretty much everything, it isn’t hard, but she gets dressed up like a witch/crazy woman, exaggerates her expressions, talks really loud, and that seems to really unnerve them.

See?

Imagine yourself as a child and standing within mere inches of this woman!

Now that I think about it, I don’t remember being frightened of the strangers and/or neighbors who opened their doors to offer me treats, so I guess my Mother’s propensities lean slightly toward the abnormal. (But I knew that already.) Considering the absolutely evil, voyeuristic delight it provides me, I suppose I’m abnormal as well. (Just call my Abby.) Normalcy be damned! I can’t WAIT to watch a horror movie marathon, eat themed food, and giggle at the sound of screams emanating from terrified children being harassed on our porch by my (fabulous) cackling witch-mom.
